California, Santa Cruz, Surf

Santa Cruz Surfer – Watercolor Sketch Art

Surf, sand, and fresh salt air

Santa Cruz, California is a mandatory road trip destination for me and my family at least once a year. No trip is complete without fish tacos at the Jack O’Neill Lunch, a swim and a cerveza at the Dream Inn pool, or a stop at Cowell Beach to watch the locals take on the surf. I created this watercolor sketch as a little reminder of these favorite things.

About this watercolor sketch

This original watercolor sketch features a surfer on his way out to the point to catch a morning wave. In the background, you’ll notice the iconic tower of the Dream Inn, a hip beach resort and designer’s paradise.

This little sketch is perfect for any home (beach or inland) to remind you of that relaxing moment where your toes hit the sand and you exhale all of life’s worries. You’re on vacation.

Here’s the shot that inspired the sketch, courtesy of the Deam Inn Instagram account. Definitely worth a follow…and a visit :)
